This world satellite view shows the contrast between daylight and darkness.
You've likely already seen satellite imagery of the world from space, and you may have even seen satellite views of our planet during ours of darkness, but this map combines both to produce a realistic map of our planet showing the beauty of both daylight hours and hours of darkness.
In the daylight portion (the Americas, West Europe, and West Africa) you can see the natural beauty of the planets deserts, rainforests, mountains, coral reefs, glaciers, and tundra.
In the darkness portions of the map (Asia, Australia, and most of Africa), you can clearly see the lights emitted by major cities and urban development.
This satellite map reminds us that at any time, exactly half of the world is in daylight and half in darkness.
More importantly, it reminds us that the human world and natural world are inseparable and that human activity is constantly changing the planet.
This satellite map makes an excellent map to display on any wall: home, office, business, or school. It will definitely attract attention and curiosity, wherever displayed.
The map is also available in a wide range of sizes and finishing options including several framing styles.
